MotoGP » MotoGP Japan - Race Results

Brilliant ride from Lorenzo, well supported by Rossi. I expected a Honda 1-2, and the Yamahas showed that they have really closed the gap to the Hondas. The Yams only had a few millilitres of fuel left when they crossed the line, but they ran hard to the finish, and they've come a long way to overcome the fuel problems they had last year. Congrats to Marquez, he deserves the championship, and did everything he had to today.

MotoGP » Rossi: Marquez improved, but 2013 more impressive

Rossi: “Unfortunately for us he was able to improve - not a lot about the speed, but about the riding style, the way to use the bike, the way to brake, the way to accelerate and especially compared to last year he remained a very aggressive but now it looks like the situation is more under control for him. Last year sometimes he risked too much, you know.” Absolutely agree.

MotoGP » Too little, too late from Pedrosa at Motegi

Metalguru: I am disappointed by Pedrosa's performance because I believe he consistently finishes beneath his potential and beneath the potential of his machine, and other competitors show greater commitment, greater hunger - Dovi, Ianone, Rossi, Redding,
Pedrosa has always beaten Dovi when they were teammates. Redding and Iannone are just good riders but they don't have Pedrosa's talent.From the young guns at the moment, only Vinales has the potential to beat Pedrosa on same machinery
Well it's true that Pedrosa beat Dovi when they were teammates, but it's a little early to compare Iannone and Redding to Pedrosa, let alone Vinales - none of them are riding bikes that could win races. It will be quite a while before any of them rack up the number of podiums that Pedrosa has, let alone the number of wins. Otherwise, your retort is a pretty fair assessment.

MotoGP » Marc Marquez is 2014 champion, Lorenzo wins Motegi

Congrats to Marquez on locking in the championship. He had a go at chasing down Lorenzo, but realised that he didn't need to, and diodn't want to make another silly mistake. I don't know what happened to Pedrosa, but he really looked to be struggling for much of the race. Great result for both factory Yamahas. Props to them both - I didn't expect them to be so competitive here. I don't understand how people find brilliant precision riding boring. Three slightly different styles at the front, and really fine margins between them, managing tyres, fuel and their race lines. What's not to like? Fairing bashing is fine, but gets silly on a track like Motegi, usually ending in carnage. Roll on to the dead rubbers...

MotoGP » Marquez unsure of Motegi title coup

TrueFan: ..and for my money, he's earned it by his riding - especially his braking and corner entry, which doesn't benefit from electronics.
Actually, a recent crash interview with a data guy says otherwise, and that engine braking strategies gain far more lap time than TC actually does. You really think that MM doesnt have the very very best tech staff and also the very very best, most effective engine braking strategies? Sorry Truefan, but while MM is a talented GP racer for sure.... its a total fallacy to think that his skills dont have the very best "help" as well with that braking and corner entry ability.
Engine braking strategies account for nought when your rear wheel is airborne...which in Marquez's case is entering most corners...and yes, he has a very well supported bike - on that I agree.
